Steven Morriss completed his Eagle Scout project Nov. 14 with the help of 15 volunteers. Steven and his volunteers assembled 39 new stackable boxes for displaying nativities at the upcoming Community Crèche Exhibit in Maple Valley.
The exhibit features more than 400 nativities from around the world and includes artwork, live music, a live indoor nativity, children’s photos and activities.
The event is free and open to the public beginning Dec. 4 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Maple Valley near Four Corners, 26800 S.E. 236TH St.
The times of the exhibit will be 5-9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, 2-9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5 and 5-9 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6.
For more information check the exhibit Web site www.mvcreche.org.
In recent years this event has been promoted as “One of the Top Ten things to do at Christmas time” in the Puget Sound area.
Steven is an 8th grader at Tahoma Junior High and is the son of Gary and Barbara Morriss of Maple Valley, and the younger brother to two older Eagle Scouts, Brian and Scott Morriss.
Following the project, Steven extended his thanks to Russ and Ken Millard of Distinctive Home Builders, Rob and Sonya Shaw, Home Depot in Covington, and Johnson’s Do It Center at Four Corners for the donations he received for his project.
